Having met and talked to plenty of vets and done my share of reading, its a pretty good flic, putting the viewer in the middle of a war with no front lines and in the heads of the men there.
No...and no. I do not concur.
It was filmed in Jordan so it definitely looks like Iraq, and that's about it. Bull$h1t movie, and hate for you to think that reflected the realism or 'feel' as you call it, of OIF.
